  • If you're a true nerd, you'll find the Lego Trebuchet inconceivably delightful. Hats off to the Middle Ages, and here's hoping our descendants in 2606 will have as much fun building miniature replica missile defense systems. (Hat tip to Dr. Joan Bushwell's Chimpanzee Refuge.)





  • Even if you turned off radio and TV off during Falling Towers Remembrance Day, you might want to visit  Mental Floss, which has collected images of 9/11 skin art.


  • Not long after Soap Blox/Chicago uploaded a photo of one recently sentenced felon and two good friends, the picture vanished from one friend's website. Good times, Denny and Rich.

  • For only $9.99 plus shipping and handling, you can be the proud owner of Talking Moses. He's one of the Holy Huggables along with Jesus and Esther (who's been called up from the minors for this occasion).  That Moses really is huggable, 'cause he recites the Ten Commandments and leaves out the part about what God will do to your great-grandchildren if you screw up (Exodus 20:4-6). (Hat tip to Bring It On!, who seems a bit resistant to purchase.)

  • GOOD magazine adds new meaning to the concept of "transparency" by dressing up Hilary Clinton and Rick Santorum like NASCAR vehicles, emblazoned with the logos of their biggest contributors. (Hat tip to the Sunlight Foundation.)
